Shopping carts with numbers that identify the families that own them, are lined up before getting filled with donated food on distribution day at Madrid's Tetuan food bank December 10, 2013. Families and activists from the 15M indignant movement founded the food bank in 2013 in Tetuan, a working-class neighbourhood of Madrid. It does not simply hand out donations; instead, the families who become recipients are expected to collaborate with the food bank by helping to collect and distribute food. Every week they stand outside local supermarkets picking up donations. Afterwards, they have to do an inventory of the food and allocate portions to each family, theirs included, which they distribute every two weeks. Currently more than 30 families (over a hundred people) are involved in the project. The development of social movements like the Tetuan food bank have come under the spotlight in Spain, whose economy has been in and out of recession since a property bubble burst six years ago, sending unemployment soaring to record highs. New registered jobless figures are being released in Spain on Tuesday, February 4, 2014. Picture taken December 10, 2013. REUTERS/Susana Vera (SPAIN - Tags: SOCIETY POVERTY BUSINESS EMPLOYMENT FOOD)

A community social worker talks to a pregnant 16-year-old teenager in Tondo, Manila August 5, 2012. The United Nations on Sunday called on Philippine leaders to pass the reproductive health bill, two days before the House of Representatives is scheduled to take a crucial vote on whether to end debates on the measure. It argued that the RH bill is not about population numbers as it is about ensuring a life of health and dignity. The UN statement also said, Family Health Survey (FHS), which was conducted from August to September 2011 with a recall period of six years for the data, estimated that for every 100,000 live births, there are 221 women dying due to complications of pregnancy and childbirth. This was a 36 percent increase from the 2006 Family Planning Survey data, which showed 162 estimated deaths per 100,000 live births. The FHS also estimated that, across all regions in the Philippines, the number of girls 15 to 19 years old who have delivered live births was 54 per 1,000 live births from 39 in 2006. For the 20 to 24 age group, the increase was to 159 per 1,000 live births from 149 in the 2006 survey. Picture taken August 5, 2012. REUTERS/Erik De Castro (PHILIPPINES - Tags: POLITICS HEALTH)

The couple, who had been living together in the 10 square metre vaulted space for more than two years, were evicted on Thursday under orders of Madrid's City Council and moved to a flat in the city after repeatedly refusing to go to a homeless shelter. Madrid's mayor Alberto Ruiz Gallardon called on Wednesday for a state law change to clear the streets of homeless people as long as there were resources to care for them at shelters. Gallardon clarified on Thursday that his intentions were to protect the dignity and health of the homeless and not for aesthetic reasons.
